Expensive Bits

October 7, 2008

My new AT&T plan is the cheapest family plan they have.  I do not want to pay extra to send text messages and I don’t want to pay extra for a data plan.  So if I were to send and/or recieve data through the phone anyways, AT&T will charge me $10.24 per megabyte I transfer.  At that rate, it would have cost me around $5,900 to transfer the amount of data I did last month on my home internet connection.
